we couldn’t even do it for you mom

your 2 daughters

22 months apart

couldn’t stop the hate

even as we stare at the mausoleum

where the silver cross shines

in the morning sunlight

as we tried to stand next to each other.

there’s too much

for these 2 daughters to stand next to each other

i will love your memory mom

enough for the entire fucking time

until i join you.
